Helix International Migration Options

Helix International has various options that are available for migrations.

  1. Full Migration – all data is migrated from the source system to the target system
  2. Ad Hoc migration – Migration is done for specific data in a specific order
  3. Archive the data and use Helix Real Time Viewer (RTV) to access the data
  4. Assisted Migration – here Helix International run the pilot / Proof of Concept and train the client to do the migration

All of the above is completed utilizing Helix International on and off shore staff.

All of the above can be mixed and matched together – so you could fully migrate some data, move in a specific order other data, leave some in an archive and access using RTV or migrate the remaining data yourself – or any other combination you require.

Full MigrationFull Migration

All selected data is migrated from the source repository to the target repository.

Extract massive heterogenous data from different devices or platforms and consolidate them in one easy-to-use system. No need to manually perform sorting, because Helix MARS has Watchers in place.

Ad Hoc MigrationOn Demand Migration

Helix international will co-operate in setting technological rules for re-prioritizing your data organization. Data is migrated in move groups to allow for required data to be made available to the users from the source repository to the target repository as soon as possible.

This might be for a specific group of customers or documents in a designated date range etc

Federation with Real Time ViewerRTV

Data is not migrated but is stored in an archive, the source system software is turned off saving the licence fee and the data is available to the user using Helix International Real Time Viewer.

Data repositories have got larger over the years and when we first started with Migrations 15 years ago we used to migrate all of the data. Now we can archive the data and make it available without having to migrate the data over a period of many years. An example of a real client situation is that the data would have taken us over 3 years to migrate to the new repository but Helix International made the data available from the archive in a little over 4 months!

You can see that the savings here can be enormous not only do you save the license fee but very little time needs to be spent to make the data available to the end user as only the Meta data is migrated to the target system.

Real Time Viewer (RTV) is a migration component form the Helix International software portfolio that utilizes a compact filter that helps end users find their needed files faster. Simply enter the right values on search fields to prompt accurate data search.

Customer Assisted Migration Assisted Migration

Helix International will run the pilot / proof of concept and train the client staff to use Helix International migration tools. This is an excellent option for clients that have technical staff that have extensive experience of migrating data repositories.

However it must be noted that for clients that do not have the experience of migrating that the time to migrate can be extended due to the inexperience. It is always the exceptions in the data, annotations and transforms that cause the issue and Helix International staff have the expertise, knowledge and experience to resolve the exceptions in a timely manner.
